No, you don't have to be a member of Betta Australis to enter :D

Most of us have never done this before - we're all learning together. Everything is provided. All you have to do is make sure your entry form and fees are in by the due date, you bring your fish in during the designated days above and you pick it up during the times/day listed above :D

All good Ness, this one really is a "practice run" so we have more than 1 person who knows how to set up for the BIG show in September. I'm trying to drum up a little more local support for this show so it will be more than a 2 horse race (1 of whom has a severe handicap) ... *lol*

This is a tank I scaped for the novice aquascaping category. The same tank, plastic plants, live plants, filter, heater, gravel and guppies are provided to all who entered this category.


One of someone's entries. Love the Koi Angels... Will be getting some of these

Well Jarrod did all the work on the bettas.

I was busy stirring up the cichlid guys, by telling them that they had mislabled one of their entries and that such and such fish has never been in Australia, and the fish they do have was a related and only recently described species, but definitely not what they had it entered as.

And this caused them more problems than I anticipated as how do they judge a fish they have no current standards for. So their solution, judge it to the standards of the other fish anyway. :rolleyes:
